33 Weeks

IMG_1585How far along? 33 weeks.  Which means when you ask how much longer (not that anyone has) I can say 6 weeks and 6 days!!

Total weight gain: I totally forgot to weigh myself this morning.  It is Valentines after all, I was focused on making waffles and doing my hair, which is far more interesting then how much I weigh.  

Baby Size: She’s 4.5lbs this week, they say.

Gender: Our girly.

Stretch marks? Yup.  I can’t see them, they’re underneath my belly, but I felt them and asked Shane to confirm.  Yuck.

Sleep: Okay.  I sort of wake up many times a night, but I’ve been feeling pretty well rested.

Best moment this week:  I went to a yoga class this week, which was enjoyable.  But my favourite moments were just time spent cuddling with the baby and Shane.

Miss Anything? I’m missing walking right now.  I would love to be somewhere I could just wander outside with all the snow.  (I still love the snow, don’t get me wrong.)

Food cravings: Fruit, buffalo sauce and potatoes.

Movement: She’s enormous and when she turns she makes my whole belly tight.  I love feeling her back on my tummy, or her bum pressing up.  We can feel a foot and leg that we chase around with our fingers sometimes.  It’s adorable, and totally makes her feel more real, more baby like.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Some nausea at any time of day.  Also, I’ve been getting some heartburn in the evening, so I just bought a box of tums, which helps.

Symptoms: I had to take my engagement ring off this week.  It was just too tight to get over my knuckle comfortably.  I feel it’s absence all the time and I worry constantly that it’s going to go missing.  My stomach and back have been achy all week.  My belly is just so heavy and stretched.  I’ve spent a lot of my week just lying in bed, where I’m most comfortable.  My boots are super hard to get on, because my feet are a little swollen.  It’s a real (uncomfortable) struggle.

Looking forward to: Going down south soon!  2 weeks and 4 days.

Items Purchased: We didn’t buy anything this week, but the baby monitor came.  Remember how I mentioned that it was imperative for me that it had a temperature monitor on it?  The other night I closed the door to the nursery for the night and when I opened it in the morning it was freezing in there!  I think we might need a space heater for the room, because obviously we have to close the door for noise/fire safety/humidifier.  Needless to say, I’m very glad I got the one I got.

Workouts: I went for one walk and to one yoga class.  I’m terrible, I know.  I’ve got nothing but excuses.
